I have this screenshot from the beginning of Great Muppet Caper, but he's not listed on IMDB for it. What's his credit on GMC? -- Danny (talk) 03:59, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

PS. The DVD is on a bookshelf approximately three feet from where I'm sitting, but I'd rather post the screenshot than bother to get up and look at the DVD myself. I'm comfortable, and it's hot. -- Danny (talk) 04:00, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
I think that's his sole credit. Sort of like "Walt Disney Presents." Which is generally equivalent to "Executive Producer" or "Venerable Bigshot Who Foots the Bills and Gets His Name on Everything Regardless of Actual Input." Andrew Leal (talk) 04:07, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Producer. - Shawn 04:08, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Not producer. The producer credit, as seen here, went to David Lazer and Frank Oz. I checked, his name isn't mentioned again. By cinematic tradition, executive producership is implied by the "Presents" (and no person is specifically credited in that role). Andrew Leal (talk) 04:11, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree with Andrew. The only credit that George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola get on Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, is "Presents." However, I've seen their names listed in study books on the film as executive producer and that's how IMDb lists them. They front some cash for the film and the filmmaker get to use their name as a selling point. Quentin Tarantino has been doing it a lot lately, too. -- Scott (talk) 14:43, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Didn't he sort of fund and sponsor the movie, like he did with The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie, and The Dark Crystal? I don't know if there's a professional name for that. Chunk 06:06, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
